Evans Aviation and Blake Evans will be at the helm of the Kincardine Airport for the next three years.

Kincardine Town Council voted at its November 18th meeting to accept Evans' renewal proposal to continue managing the airport at $76,946 per year.

Council had approved a ceiling fee of $77,000 per year and Evans came in below that and, was in fact, the only bid to come in below $100,000.

Blake Evans has managed the airport for some eight years, since 2007, and also owns and operates the flight school and charter flights at the Airport.

There is also a strong relationship within the community with school classes taking field trips to the airport and an inter-provincial involvement with flying groups and charter flights.

According to Evans, the Airport has also become a fly-in centre for businesses whose executives take advantage of the time involved in flying to their destination as opposed to driving.

Evans' new contract takes affect January 1st and runs through to December 31, 2018.
